'reilly is taking on jon stewart in a debate the rumble in the air conditioned auditorium. yes. and last night, john explains how he's preparing. >> and how are you preparing? you're prepping for the rumble. >> with colbert and a chicken. >> that's how i prepare for almost everything. >> and here we go again. and stewart has experience involving animals and, from the seat to the master of fox, huh? >> i made those movies when i was in college and i had them destroyed. >> and that's why you have no-- >> oh, my gosh. >> i think the real winner in this is america. there's nothing america needs more than two enormously wealthy men creating a new revenue stream through this debate. >> somebody's got to do it. >> i hope. i hope this debate can heel a divided nation. >> we'll get back to you on that, dana. >> the only thing i was wondering, what's the setup. what does the set look like. because bill o'reilly is very tall and jon stewart is not that tall, much taller than i am, but are they going to be sitting at a table? what would be the-- or what were the pre-debate negotiations. >> and bill is going to
there first. >> jessica, the president was trying to keep things light when he taped an appearance on jon stewart's "the daily show." regarding the attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. what did he say? >> that's right. he told jon stewart in benghazi, the administration shared information with the public as it was coming in, and as the picture is getting filled in for them, they are sharing it with the american people. the president was asked by jon stewart at one point if the administration's response to the attack was not "optimal." the president said if four americans get killed, it's not optimal. that's not an ideal way to phrase that, and the president taking some heat from that already from critics tonight. especially because this is such a hot topic under a microscope on the campaign trail and expect the phrasing to come up tomorrow from his critics. >> i already saw that online and i was surprised by his use of the word optimal. you're saying jon stewart actually used that word in the question? >> jon stewart used that word in the question, and it was -- somewhere lower down
conference to explain what happened in libya, but he did find time to sit down with jon stewart to talk about the attack. >> i would say even you would admit it was not the optimal response to the american people as far as us being on the same page. >> here is what i'll say. >> if four americans get killed it's not optimal. we will fix it. >> kimberly: does it make you fall out of your chair? "not optimal"? the mother of sean smith killed in libya said, "it's insensitive to say my son is not optimal. he is very dead. i have not been optimal since he died and the past few weeks have been pure hell. it's disrespectable and it's not right. how can you say somebody being killed not very optimal. a lot of stupid things were said about my son and what happened. this is another one of them. to say this is an unfortunate statement is understatement of epic proportion. this is something, you don't say that. i don't care that jon stewart said it before. >> why did he repeat it back? >> this is when you do media training for someone and you go in interview, don't repeat the negative. don't let them put
, you don't say that. i don't care that jon stewart said it before. >> why did he repeat it back? >> this is when you do media training for someone and you go in interview, don't repeat the negative. don't let them put words in your mouth. it can happen. it should not happen to someone on the national stage this long. to make sure it didn't happen. and someone who said they look full responsibility. the whole situation is bad. i think they should not have announced so early in the week that president obama was going to be on the daily show. i love the daily show. i would recommend it to anybody. it's great. in this time, right before the election and in the middle of a situation where all of a sudden, everybody at the white house and the campaign is shutting down and trying to starve this story of oxygen. he basically fueled the flames of it. >> kimberly: there has been a response about this. >> here is what happens. when president obama is not reading a speech from teleprompter he says the private sector is doing fine. you didn't build that. now not optimal. dana pointed somethi

time with leno, letterman, jon stewart, pimp with the limp and mtv? i don't think, today was an unbelievable look in two candidates. >> dana: traditionally the weekend before the last weekend before the eselection candidates make closing arguments. president obama today, i would have gone to mtv if i were in their shoes as well, because i don't think there is anything that president obama can do at this point, 11 days out to convince people that he has done a great job on the economy. he has not run on his record up to now. he is not going to start. they need to get the youth vote out. the youth vote that he carried handily in 2008 are not there in 2012. if i were in chicago and i woke up and saw that romney beat obama in every poll, when it comes to the economy, i would be nervous, even in the battleground state obama seems to be up one or two, these economic numbers will probably slump them on election day. >> greg: i think appearing on mtv is a great move for president obama because at the hard-hitting questions will be faced with journalists who think libya is a swedi
with the relentless right-wing push to suppress your vote. we told you about jon husted, ohio's republican secretary of state who's appealing a ruling that reinstated early voting in the last three days before the election. in 2008, 93,000 ohioans voted in the final three days. that's why president obama sued husted for cutting off early voting, and he won, but the secretary of state refuses to go away. let's be clear what's going on here. we have a guy in charge of elections doing everything he can to make it harder for people to vote. it seems crazy, right? so who is this man? joining me now from ohio is ohio state representative kathleen clyde, and joe madison, nationally syndicated radio host of "mornings with madison." thank you both for joining me tonight. >>> representative, let's go to you first. what can you tell us about this man? >> well, today's decision shows us he really will stop at nothing to fight voters having access to the polls, and having their votes counted. appealing this decision, the united states supreme court to have voting on the three busiest days of early voting is yet
secretary of state jon husted to restrict voting in his states. now voters will be allowed to vote early, three days before the election. it's a devastating blow to husted who's been trying to block early voting in his state, all in a national effort to suppress democratic votes in this election and blocking early voting is especially agee yoegr. 2008, 93,000 ohioans voted in early voting. today's ruling in ohio adds to the gop losing streak. republicans trying to block the vote have lost in the courts in states ranging from texas and florida to wisconsin and pennsylvania. this is a huge victory for all americans. in essence, the supreme court ruled today against gop officials who wanted less voting, not more in this election. there are now 26 states and the district of columbia that allow early in-person voting. remember, voting is a right not a privilege.
: president obama made an appearance on friendly territory thursday. that's when he was a guest of jon stewart and the daily show. he got away with a comment that maybe he should have been pressed on a little harder. we start this week's notable quotables with the president's response to a question about sacrificing our values to ensure national security. >> there are some tradeoffs. i mean, there are times when there are bade folks somewheren the other side of the world and you've got to make a call and it's not optimal. >> that's the first time that the president used the term not optimal. now i want to fast forward a couple of minutes in the interview. this is when you're going to see the discussion change. it focuses now on the administration's response to the benghazi attacks. >> i would say even you would admit it was not the optimal response, at least to the american people as far as us all being on the same page. >> well, here's what i'll say. >> yeah. >> if four americans get killed, it's not optimal. >> right. >> and we're going to fix it. >> huckabee: hm. now, there were people who
to regain control of the senate. >> arizona, we know republican senator jon kyl is retiring. the democratic campaign committee has an ad of attacks. the republican race for his record on issues impacting women. what is happening there? >> really interesting, brooke. this has been a sleeper race. the republican congressman you're talking about, jeff flake, an affable republican, known as a fiscal conservative. he was against the earmarks before, that was cool. democrats have been painting him as too far to the right as -- on social issues for the state of arizona. remember how worried republican leaders were about todd akin's comments about rape and abortion. this is why. watch this ad. >> jeff flake is hoping we remain silent as he votes to defund planned parenthood, denying us access to reproductive and preventative care. >> and another problem for flake is the democratic opponent he's running against is pretty much the last kind of democrat you want to run against, especially in a politically purple, increasingly hispanic state of arizona. richard car momona. he's a decorated vietnam vete

he'll be sparring tonight. let's talk polls, brianna. this is my personal hat tip to jon stewart. kind of funny. just as he knows and everyone else knows, we check the daily gallup tracking polls here at cnn. it shows president obama losing two more points, mitt romney gaining one point. the president still leading. you see here 48% to romney's 46%. but, you know, we could theorize that post debate slide here for the president, brianna, hasn't bottomed out yet. is team obama realistically hoping that joe biden can turn it around tonight at the vp dpaeb debate? >> reporter: biden's folks say that the vice president is playing his own game but we know the reality. he is you should a lot of pressure because of what you see in the polls. this momentum that's very much on the side of mitt romney. and paul ryan. so it is very much up to vice president biden to take a shot here and try to stop some of that momentum because if you see a win by paul ryan, it's covered as a one-two punch. the momentum will continue. we know talking to some of the vice president's aides that he's going to c
